Crustless Summer Zucchini Pie

Always on the lookout for new, seasonal recipes, I dug through my Pinterest album aptly titled "Foodage" and found this pin:

Pretty scrumptious looking, eh? It's from skinnytaste.com which is why it's obnoxiously professional.

What I love about this recipe is that it fills a 9 inch pie pan with only 3 eggs. So even if you and your husband finish it in one day (which never happened-- stop judging me!), you've really only eaten 1 and a half eggs. Are you impressed at my math skills?! (rhetorical question, of course you are)


In true "Jamie the Absent-Minded Chef" fashion, I forgot to grease the pan and thus the slices became a bit of a mess when I tried to remove them. So... learn from me.


And for dessert? A mini burger cake courtesy of Gelson's bakery-- it was quite tasty!

Almost too cute to eat, no?

Crustless Summer Zucchini Pie

Ingredients:
  • 2 medium zucchinis, shredded
  • 2 shallots, chopped
  • 1/2 tsp oregano
  • 1/2 tsp basil
  • 3/4 cup part skim mozzarella
  • 3 tbsp grated parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 cup white whole wheat flour (King Aurthur)
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 2/3 cup fat free milk
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 3 large eggs, beaten
  • 1/2 tsp kosher salt
  • fresh cracked pepper to taste
  • cooking spray (I used my misto)

Directions:

Preheat oven to 400°. Lightly spray a pie dish with cooking spray. Combine zucchini, shallots, and mozzarella cheese in a bowl.

Sift flour and baking powder in a medium bowl. Add remaining ingredients to the bowl and blend well. Combine with zucchini mixture and pour it into the pie dish.

Top with parmesan cheese and bake 30-35 minutes or until knife comes out clean from the center. Let it stand at least 5 minutes before serving.

**My recipe is a little different from the one at skinnytaste.com, so check out her version here.

What's your favorite seasonal recipe?  Do you like the new look for HPG???

    1. It is! The original recipe omits the basil and oregano, using fresh chives instead. If you make it let me know what you think!
